Chick-fil-A Combines Two Menu Favorites to Create Refreshing New Treat

ATLANTA - March 16, 2015 - PR Newswire / - Chick-fil-A® introduces its newest menu item, Frosted Lemonade, at restaurants nationwide today. The refreshing treat combines two of the fast food restaurant’s most beloved offerings, fresh-squeezed lemonade and its signature Icedream®.

The new menu item was long rumored as a recipe created by Chick-fil-A team members to enjoy while on breaks. After hearing stories of the creative concoction, Chick-fil-A refined the Frosted Lemonade recipe and formally tested it in restaurants in Charleston, S.C., Raleigh, N.C., Sacramento, Calif., and N.W. Arkansas in spring of 2014. Positive customer feedback confirmed Chick-fil-A’s decision to launch the treat nationwide for customers seeking an on-the-go snack or an indulgence that is lighter than a milkshake.

“We always knew customers loved our lemonade, and we always knew they loved Icedream. But we never thought to combine the two to make a completely original treat that isn’t a milkshake or even a smoothie,” said David Farmer, vice president of menu strategy and development for Chick-fil-A. “Thanks to team members, this recipe will now be a delicious, lower calorie treat that all customers can enjoy anytime.”

Chick-fil-A’s lemonade is made from scratch daily at each restaurant using only fresh lemon juice, pure cane sugar and water. In 2014, Chick-fil-A served 121 million cups of lemonade and purchased approximately 250 million lemons. Icedream, inspired by founder Truett Cathy’s original recipe, is a soft serve ice cream with a simple, distinct vanilla flavor. Frosted Lemonade is available in a 16oz. serving with prices starting at $2.69 and can be handspun with diet or regular lemonade. Diet Frosted Lemonade (with Splenda®) has only 240 calories, while the regular Frosted Lemonade contains 330 calories.
